Yahoo! Movies debuted a clip from the new featurette with producer Don Hahn, animator Glen Keane, and more discussing a painting by Kay Nielsen that influenced a turning point in the story of Belle and Beast. Hahn also spoke about how the scene plays out in the live-action film directed by Bill Condon.
Hahn promises the sequence will be just as memorable in Bill Condon’s upcoming live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, which stars Emma Watson and Dan Stevens and will hit theaters on March 17, 2017. “I didn’t talk to Bill about Nielsen’s piece, but the moment in the film is exquisite. Bill crafted something that’s wonderfully caring, romantic and beautiful at the same time,” said Hahn. “It’s the kind of moment that filmmakers dream of, and it inspired Kay Nielsen, us, and now Bill.”
Beauty and the Beast will be available September 6th on Digital HD & Disney Movies Anywhere and September 20th on Blu-ray & DVD. Click here for more information on the release.
